Welcome to RAC's Gallery

We’re open 6 days a week (the gallery is closed on Monday) and admission is free.

Drop by our light, airy first-floor gallery to explore stimulating high-quality art that changes each month.

  • Stroll around or have a seat on our comfortable benches and reflect on the artwork.
  • Bring lunch to enjoy on our deck overlooking the scenic Five Mile River.
  • Meet our artists and other art lovers during the free reception for each exhibit and show.

During the course of a year we display diverse woOrks in all media – acrylic, computer art, drawings, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, prints, sculpture and watercolor.

Our goal is to provide maximum exposure for the talents of RAC members. Six exhibitions include 40-80 works exclusively by RAC exhibiting members … all members and the public have the opportunity to be juried into three other exhibits … and the first exhibit each year features artwork by RAC instructors and students.

Juror: Miggs Burroughs
"Nowhere is it more evident that art is all about personal expression than at the current exhibition at the Rowayton Arts Center. While undertaking the difficult task of including some work while excluding others, I was struck by the distinct approach taken by every single artist to his or her subject matter and medium. In some categories, there were virtually no signs of a recurring theme or style, which was very refreshing.

"Having been on both ends of this process, I understand that this is no consolation for those who didn't get into the exhibition, and to all of you I say, keep being the artist you are. Somewhere out there is a gallery wall waiting for each and every one of us.

"The awardees in each category, especially the Best in Show, demonstrated an outstanding command of their artistic voice, medium and presentation.

"Congratulations to the RAC for attracting and cultivating such a talented membership."
